READ THIS WHOLE POST AND FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS. As I described in the original Smogon Council thread, nine players will be selected to cast a vote to decide the tiering of Salamence. If you believe you are qualified and are interested in being on the Council, you must post your application here. Your application must include the elements listed below. Descriptions and clarification of each element follow. Primary Shoddy Account Username Standard Ladder Rating: Standard Ladder Deviation: Suspect Ladder Rating: Suspect Ladder Deviation: Tournament Presence: Optional short paragraph: Explanation of elements and directions: 1) We ask for your primary shoddy account username in order to verify the claims you make about your rating and deviation. With the help of Doug, we are able to pull and examine extensive statistics about every player. We ask for your username to make sure we're looking at the right account. 2) Standard/Suspect Rating and Deviation: This provides us with a good measure of the amount of time and effort you put into test and your general experience with the game as of late. The numbers you post should correspond to the actual numbers available on the server at the time of your post. Screenshots are encouraged since all required numbers will be immediately verifiable. We will look these numbers up when we are evaluating applications. Any significantly large unfavorable variances between what you report here and what we find on the server won't help your chances. Providing a screenshot helps eliminates this risk for you. Your rating is computed as the average between the high and lows of the server provided range. Your deviation is the difference between the high and the low divided by 2. Use /record username to look up the information. 3) Tournament presence: This is just another way for us to evaluate your competency in the game. Anything you post here should be relevant to the test at hand. This means DP OU only. Any claims you make here should be supported by links to the individual tournament threads to allow us to quickly verify your claims. We welcome information relating to all tournaments from the past year, including #stark cups. 4) The optional short paragraph is there for you to simply sound off about why you should be chosen over everyone else. When I say short... I mean it. We are not interested in reading anything longer than a few sentences there. READ THIS WHOLE POST AND FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS. In about a week, this thread will be closed, and Jumpman and I will announce who has been chosen. A vote will be held shortly thereafter. Please do not be discouraged if you are not chosen... obviously nine is a rather small number so some competent people just won't make the cut. Thanks again to everyone for participating!
